1909 Cadillac First Start in 79 Years
This 1909 Cadillac was stripped down into a speed car, raced and then parked in 1934. I was acquired in the early 1960's for restoration. The restoration was put on hold for many years and then re-started a few years ago. After multple checks of the ignition and timing we finally achieved the first start on July 28, 2012. There is still more to do to tune the engine and sort it out for driving later this year. The spray on the first try happened when we left the primer cups open. It runs better with them closed. And the owner did make it a bit easier by adding an electric starter to the car. For more of the story see the HCCA Gazette, May - June 2009.

There are a lot of really good beer drinking stories about lost relics or abandoned treasures in the massive Alaskan wilderness. There are stories of lost gold mines and eccentric miners who vanished or died after burying a cache of gold in the late 1800s or early 1900s that's just waiting for some lucky soul to stumble over. There are dozens stories of wrecked WWII aircraft and one particularly of a crash landed and mostly intact Bell P-39 Air Cobra that is said to have belly landed in eight feet of powdered snow somewhere up around Eureka Summit during the war. The locals however are pretty tight lipped concerning these stories and dont give up their secrets very often , especially to city slickers. Most of these tales are just that, good stories, and are probably based on a grain of truth and nothing more but they make good stories and theyre OUR stories. Myself, Ive always enjoyed hearing the tales and like most folks find my voice raising with each question that I ask in relation to the particular subjects where abouts, knowing full well that the guy telling me the story knows as little as I do. Yet having always been a WWII truck and aircraft enthusiast its easy to get wound up with each telling of a certain story. Ad to it the mystique of the Alaskan wilderness and a possible abandoned gold mine somewhere in the telling and well, its a story worth repeating and maybe even adding one or two of my own personal details to it for good measure. One story that has been around for decades is that of a big game hunting guide that had a place north of Eureka. The story goes that he had a Studebaker US6 from WWII that he used to haul supplies from an air field that is 75 miles out of Eureka. According to the story, the old gentleman had eventually died and the Studebaker had sat abandoned at the remote airstrip ever since. The truck's engine had, had water instead of anti-freeze in it and therefor supposedly froze up with ice and broke the cylinder head. The truck , it is said, is all there and intact. To claim this relic would be simple, all a person would have to do is find a cylinder head for a 1940s Hercules JXD , fly up to the air field that is 75 miles from no where , install the cylinder head and then get a truck running that has sat deteriorating for 20 years in the Alaskan wilderness , have someone fly you gas and beer and then drive a 1945 Studebaker 75 miles back to civilization. Oh and did I mention that there are no roads and plenty of grizzly bears too? That really would make a good story. Well thats just exactly what Robert did. The story of the old truck is true and I loaned him a Hercules JXD cylinder head in August of 2009. Ray has an airplane and flew 'Close Air Support' hauling fuel , beer and moral support from all of us here at home. I think the videos explain the rest. Oh and if you ask why did they do this? If I have to explain , you wouldnt understand.
